Andher Nagri Chaupat Raja: 10 commandments

Once upon a time, there was very prestigious school, "Andher Nagri School" and the principal was "world known"  "Chaupat Raja". His colleagues were also world known and well respected.

Together they formulated the rules of the school:

1. In lower classes, students have to sought permission from the teachers before they enter the class because its important that students should learn culture.

2. From time to time, teachers should encourage students by their tales of their stay in Japan, Sweden, United states.

3. Teachers will follow the coercive style of leadership. Teachers are not supposed to praise any student, else they may go crazy.

4. Teacher should identify potential in students in terms of their similarity to student's shape and size with teacher's. And he should be held as reference.

5. Teachers are not supposed to put syllabus else, they won't come to class.

6. Teachers will not upload the lecture slides. (Teachers should use the lecture slide which comes as the first result of googling "term+pdf")

7. They should constantly convey the message that how much they want to teach student and that the students dont allow them to teach.

8. Teachers should mention any term randomly during class and whenever they want to "encourage" students, they should ask for that term.

9. Only those students who come to class are honored to ask the doubt.

10. If teachers don't want to teach, they can say,"You know all these". "It has been taught."

P.S. These rules are subjected to change. They come spontaneously to IC's mind.

Making of Sarang

Being true, I must admit how difficult its for us to release a single issue of Sarang, a hindi magazine which we initially intended to release twice a semester but now Sarang is subjected to availability of content. Its not that we had not tried to contact our friends with similar likes for Hindi as us, but i blame lazy weather and numerous test/assignment on their indifference to our request for an article for Sarang.

But after creating and nurturing Sarang for more than a year, its very hard for us to shut it without fighting for it existence one more time. Amitabh Mishra gave us a much needed  jolt in order to make us sincere toward our common love. Amitabh Mishra is not a new face to Sarang. He is the pioneer for hindi literary movement in BITS-Goa by planting seed of Srijan. Srijan has not been able to come up with expectations of different hindi based events, but surely it has marked its presence through Sarang with its little but remarkable presence in different colleges of India. 

Aishwarya Tiwari has been the soul of Sarang since last few issues. Its her unflinching loyalty and unconditional love for Sarang that we are blessed with frequent though slow appearance of Sarang. In the recent fourth issue, she has grown up into full fledged writer by making her strong mark in story telling as well as heart touching poetry. Well, i am jealous of her. I too wrote one article but her Rukhsar's story has shadowed all other creations including mine. Sad!!!

There is one bubbly girl without whom Sarang is incomplete. She has credit of giving collection of hindi writing       
a name "Sarang". She is a natural all rounder with her keen interest in drama, dance, photography and guitar. She is involved in all stages of Sarang  and soon she is going to give us a new Srijan t-shirt. She is currently key decison maker among st because of her always smiling face and head full of ideas. This all description can fit only Anumeha Drivedi

We are proud to have fourth edition of Sarang, for your love. Click on the picture to download
